      I had to go allin on the flop, but there was no flushdraw possible and I had very good hand so I decided to play it a little slower. Is is bad to play like that?

      Betting 0,7 on the flop won't make it much slowed. If you want to trap him, you have to check behind on flop and hope he bets turn.

      I'm not very fond of slowplaying in micros though, because players tend to be very passive there, so you can often get higher EV by betting, betting, betting.

      I just follow my standard line and cbet. I prefer to slowplay on dry multiway flops where I can easily balance with the hands were i've completely missed and don't bet.

      Hey SPeedFANat1c,

      if you really want to slowplay then you have to check behind as mentioned before, but I wouldn't recommend such play against unknown(slowplay works only against aggressive opponents) and specially not on low limits. So, just push as you would with any other hand, because c-betting more than half of your stack doesn't make much sense.
